242 pp. Black-and-white illustrations, including maps. Notes, list of sources, index. "Combines the vivid erudition of Barbara Tuchman's A Distant Mirror with the suspense and drama of Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. Eric Jager has invented a genre that reminds us that human nature has not changed very much over the ages and that sometimes reality is bigger than life and more riveting than fiction."
